I can relate to your viewpoint of Pigpen jerlouvis.

It's very hit and miss regarding his vocal performances.

His keyboard skills were very basic. To the point that Merle Saunders was brought in to put Hammond overdubs on Skull and Roses.
The comparison with Leon Russell is risible. Leon Russell was an in demand session player in the 1970's, Pigpen wasn't.

Pigpen could certainly blow a mean gob iron though.

Try these though, they are some of my Pigpen favourites from 1971:

'Mr. Charlie' and 'Big Boss Man' from 1971/08/14 -

'It Hurts Me Too' from 1971/04/29
